Good, But Read It All Before
on 22 March 2012
This is a very good book. However, if you are a self-help fan and have read a few books around the subject of self-improvement and having a better life etc it may not offer anything new to you.
I read the whole book, and liked it somewhat; her message is clear and the examples she gives are good,with stories mostly drawn from her own life. I found this interesting, particularly when she talks about the mistakes she made and the subsequent lessons. I think this is what kept me reading.
Jillian Michaels has obviously taken great care in producing a book that is well balanced with advice that is deceptively simple but effective. This is a quality book and I probably would have LOVED it if I had read it about 20 years ago, before reading anything else, and would have seen it as quite life changing then.
